MERGER VALUATION Hastings estimates that if it acquires Visscher, the year-end dividend will remain at $1.99 a share, but synergies will enable the dividend to grow at a constant rate of 7% a year (instead of the current 5%). Hastings also plans to increase the debt ratio of what would be its Visscher subsidiary; the effect of this would be to raise Visscher’s beta to 1.05. What is the per-share value of Visscher to Hastings Corporation?
